The recalls at Honda Motor Co. over defective Takata air bags have grown by another 4.5 million vehicles, raising the tally at the Japanese automaker to 24.5 million.
Tokyo-based Honda said Thursday the latest recall affects 1.63 million vehicles in Japan, but none in North America.
It declined to give a regional breakdown until governments were notified, while acknowledging the recall affects many other nations.
It spans 17 models, including the Fit subcompact, Stream minivan and CR-V sport utility vehicle.
The recall is for the problem announced previously with air bag inflators that can kick in with too much force. But the manufacturing period was extended to 2007 through 2011, from the previous 2004 through 2006.
Honda has been the automaker hardest hit by the recalls.
